The value of Irish humor

By Tom Purcell
 
With the world in such a tizzy these days — with so many people ready to shout and argue and poke each other in the eyes — I can't think of a better time to embrace the Irish spirit. It's my great good fortune to be a fellow of Irish descent. I share my good fortune with a quarter of all Americans, who can also trace their heritage to the rolling, green hills of Ireland. As a lad, I remember my father sitting on the back porch on Sundays. Uncle Mike would sometimes visit for a couple of beers, and few things gave the two more pleasure than swapping Irish jokes. Such as the one about the fellow who was touring the Irish countryside.
